Texas Agriculture Department’s New Dress Code Is Based On ‘Biological Gender’

The Texas Department of Agriculture is ordering its employees to comply with a new dress code, mandating they abide by it in a “manner consistent with their biological gender.” An ACLU attorney says it violates federal law that bans employment discrimination based on one’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
In a copy of the April 13 memo first obtained by The Texas Observer, the new dress code — handed down by Sid Miller, the state’s agriculture commissioner — is required by all employees as a part of a “dress code and grooming policy.”
“Employees are expected to comply with this dress code in a manner consistent with their biological gender,” the new policy said.
